Abstract

Leptospirosis has been recognized as a disease affecting most species of domestic animals and is an important zoonosis worldwide. Serotype pomona has been recognized as a major cause of bovine, porcine, equine, and ovine leptospirosis in the United States. Leptospirosis in sheep can be manifested either as abortion or as a syndrome of fever, hemolytic anemia, and hemoglobinuria. This report is concerned with fatal hemolytic anemia in 2 neighboring flocks of lambs. The anemia was attributed to infection with Leptospira interrogans serotype pomona.
